With the arrival of a new generation of talented girls, another lively year at Seishou Music Academy begins. The graduating 99th class is already preparing for the much-anticipated rendition of Starlight, a bittersweet story about the parting of two girls.

It seems like all students in the Actor Training Department have their post-graduation future figured out—except for the cheerful Karen Aijou. Having fulfilled her promise of performing in a play with Hikari Kagura, her ambitious childhood friend, Karen struggles to find her purpose. What lies beyond their promise is a mystery to Karen, as Hikari was the fuel that kept her passion for performing aflame. Now alone, Karen must confront the reality of stage girls and find her way toward the future—her very own stage.

Revue Starlight was one of the series I skipped during summer 2018 and watched at a later date. I ended up really liking it: the pretentious allegory, the idea of life being a stage performance, the critique it brought upon revue (and theatre in general I'd add) and meritocracies to some extent. What's great about this last aspect is the fact that you can tell that it's critique coming from someone supporting the cause, but not agreeing on the means implied, unlike critique for the sake of critique. All in all, a great little series with a rather big cast of cute girls that felt ...

Mixed Feelings
A movie that excels in visuals, music, sound, voice acting, cinematography, and just about everything you can imagine but still gives no closure to the average viewer

This movie sequel takes place after the TV show. There was a recap movie called Rondo Rondo Rondo but I didn't see that.
